Assistance Dogs in Training Australia (ADiTA) has been formed to provide a service to people with a disability, or their carers, who are seeking information about Assistance Dogs in Training
(ADiT) in Australia.
In addition to being trained to specifically perform tasks to provide assistance to a person with disability, Assistance Dogs (AD), and Assistance Dogs in Training (ADiT), often increase their owner/handler’s confidence to leave their home; improve their independence and their self esteem.
If you have a disability – physical, mental, emotional or psychosocial – which functionally impacts your life – your GP, Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Occupational Therapist might suggest an AD could be beneficial to you.
An Assistance Dog is considered a medical aid.
